Tricuspid Atresia Summary

Description: Absence of the orifice between the RIGHT ATRIUM and RIGHT VENTRICLE, with the presence of an atrial defect through which all the systemic venous return reaches the left heart. As a result, there is left ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR) because the right ventricle is absent or not functional.

Also Known As: Absent Right Atrioventricular Connection; Atresia, Tricuspid Valve; Atresias, Tricuspid; Atresias, Tricuspid Valve; Tricuspid Atresias Show All >>
